Paul Woolley Centre Scholarship Programme

The Paul Woolley Centre Scholarship Programme aims to support students pursuing postgraduate research in the areas covered by the Paul Woolley Centre research agenda|.

The scholarships are awarded between March and June each year to a maximum number of three outstanding PhD students who have been admitted to the PhD programme of the Finance Department or the Economics Department of the London School of Economics.

The scholarships are awarded by a scholarship committee consisting of Dr Paul Woolley|, the Paul Woolley Centre Director Professor Dimitri Vayanos| and the Financial Markets Group Director Professor Christopher Polk|. The Scholarships provide a stipend to support fees and/or living expenses.

The award amount will not exceed that of the LSE PhD Scholarships, which cover fees and a living allowance of up £18,000 per annum. The Scholarship will be renewable on an annual basis after review.

We are not currently accepting applications. Successful candidate(s) for the 2014-15 scholarship will be announced here| shortly.

Paul Woolley Centre Scholars are based within the Centre and the Financial Markets Group, and are expected to work closely with its staff and faculty.
